Today we have a poem about the nature of poetry by Ryōkan:
Who says my poems are poems?
My poems are not poems.
After you know my poems are not poems,
Then we can begin to discuss poetry!
What is the Great Fool saying here?
I know from my own experience that I have had people talk about music at me for days without ever even coming close to the topic.Is that the implication here, or is is something else?
